    Yeah I played all the old ones from, I believe my very first was 1999/2000 Championship. Put a lot of hours into that on PS1! Tbh I put a lot into 2006 the last they did too though they really went all out arcade there. But the remaster F1 Championship Edition for PS3 I still own and still looks like a real TV broadcast! Replays are just stunning with Sony going all out. I'd love that style of graphics again, just massively realistically smooth would be amazing and yes the 2002/04 were much more sim compared to the arcade standards of before, tricky to master and very rewarding, including really nice rewards, I still have the PS2 with the extra disc with FULL season highlights just just gave free with the game! Though the play function is pretty buggy!

    But today there is no denying what Codemasters has accomplished with advancements on AI (not including backmarkers, they still get weird on us), it would be nice to hear what EA have planned, if they are rebuilding from scratch then how are they going to treat the AI system, because it took years for Codemasters to perfect it, EA won't get it right off the bat, no company can when its back to basics. We will go through all the teething together, then if EA do perfect the AI will they then sell it for another to rebuild? History always repeats. So I'm hoping EA are really thinking hard on its direction. I want smooth graphics, but I'd take slightly grainy over perfect wheel to wheel AI right now. There is no greater feeling in a racing game than earning a clean battle race with a tough but fair AI. I'm also concerned of microtransactions since a few of EAs latest releases have resembled that of the sickeningly corrupt mobile gaming world.. 

    They’d be foolish IMO to start from scratch. They have a good base to build on now. The cash injection and man power alone will help the series.

  2. If they allow CM access to their resources and better funding then it could be a well polished game. If they want to dig their claws in though then it'll be loot boxes and Ultimate F1 team, buying cards for engines, upgrades and drivers. 

  3. Yes 2022 will be the full next gen game. Bit like 2015 was a flop but 2016 was much better. 

    I’d hate to see more micro transactions. When you pay £65 for a next gen game and then additional cash to gain stuff, frustrates those who don’t have that money let alone the principal of not handing over additional cash. 

    Yes the game needs a overhaul and is needed. With the power these new consoles bring it need to be utilised. How that will look will be interesting. A more immersive race weekend? The base game is there and visually 19 and 20 look much better. However the little things need looking at. Safety Car can be refined better, the wet weather transition needs to be longer and not a script. That’s just a toe in the water.

    Honestly, I can't believe this. Even though the main menu doesn't show that Kinnect not detected and voice commands disabled bottom message, there's still no support for voice commands to use the radio on Xbox Series X.

    For all these years, every single edition, people ask questions about this here and every time they blame Microsoft.

    So what now? This is 2020. Next gen consoles are already here. Please, don't tell us we will need to find adaptors and an old used Kinnect from 2013 to be able to do something that on Windows and PlayStation people can do with any cheap headset!

    Don't forget the game was designed for the Xbox One which as you state is limited to Kinect voice command. 


    When the F1 game is built for the next gen, then I suspect we'll see a change. 

  5. I’m going to add to this. I was completing Singapore FP3. Bit of context as it started dry but quickly went wet. it dried out at the end with 6 minutes left so everyone went into the pits bar Gasly. So he completes his first two laps and was completing lap 3 when the session ended. 

    If you look at the video, his first sector is a 27.586 and then the session ends. Not surprised he jumped ahead of me with the usual ending session bug but wondered where he gained the time because it wasn’t stand out as the track was transitioning. 

    You’ll see he completed an additional THREE LAPS!

    We all know weird things go on with skipping but @BarryBL three laps?

    Thought it meant we could put more sponsor decals on our car...that's such a weird choice of words, my lord that's very misleading LOL

    It was my guess as hadnt updated but that’s good to hear.

    Hold hold hold hold on a second 

    The customisable car now has 11 slots for sponsor decals

    Can anyone explain or show me in-game about what this really means? (I really wanna know but I won't be at home anytime soon arghhhh 😱)

    Just means you can save 11 different liveries. So could save each season decal for nostalgia

    We have no exact date as of yet, however, we do have a fix in test at this moment in time. As long as all goes as expected in the testing, we should see it soon. Thanks all for the patience on this.

    Morning @BarryBL. When can we expect a hot fix for this? I’ve got away with it in Spa and Monza but will be hitting Singapore soon which we all know we need blue flags there!

    Yep. Lewis AI is hyper-aggressive to the point of constantly spinning out alone during overtaking attempts. Can't count the times where i was on the lead, and he attempts a overtake from the inside, scrapes my car, loses traction and spins.

    Bottas is pretty reliable so far, 3rd season of my team. Hamilton has such terrible results since the first season to the point that Bottas is probably the first driver, hah.

    Lewis was was mechanical in mine. Although since the updates Lewis has come back stronger it seems.
